Character Description
Standing at about 6' tall Onwen has an average build but a clean shaven face and neatly trimmed brown hair reveals the squared and chiseled features of his face. His eyes are a light shade of green that constantly seem to survey his environment or gauge the person who is speaking to him.

He favors finely made wizard robes and cloaks with his favorite being a dark blue robe with black trim. He carries a staff made of oak that has an onyx gem in the form of a small sphere clasped by a steel claw set at the end of the staff.
Character History
Born the second son of a Cormyr nobleman Onwen spent his life in the shadow of his older brother. Boeric got everything from their father, wealth, looks, intelligence, and eventually the Brecht estate and Onwen was only destined for the leftover scraps. Whether this was the reality of not, it was Onwen's perception.

But Onwen became a master at disguising his bitterness toward his brother, and his lot in life. In his youth he spent much of his time in hedonistic pursuits, squandering what "leftovers" his father threw his way and in fact he grew to appreciate the fact that he seemed to have many of the benefits of nobility without the overwhelming responsibility that his brother often faced; it helped to placate his sense of bitterness and injustice.

Onwen was sent to study at an arcane academy and returned ready to fulfill his role, though begrudgingly, as a mage and adviser for his brother but as fate would have it he would fall in love with his brother's new fiancee, a beautiful half-elf woman named Audreeana. To his surprise, she returned Onwen's interest and they began a love affair that culminated in the two eloping and making their way to the Sword Coast.

Audreeana would not survive the journey, however, and fell victim to a mysterious plague that ravaged the caravan that they were travelling with. Heartbroken, Onwen did what he could to preserve Audreeana's body and vowed to find a way to cheat death and return her to life. He set up residence in Waterdeep and joined up with a band of adventurers hoping to fund his research and perhaps even come across ancient tomes or artifacts during his travels that he can use to cheat the fates which seem to have dealt him such a wretched hand.

He pushes his bitterness down and tries to make the best of what he has while biding his time and garnering his resources for the day he will be reunited with his love.
